Knight-Kenesie Steps Down as Basketball Coach
University of Wisconsin-Parkside women's basketball coach Jenny Knight-Kenesie, the program's all-time wins leader and the architect of five NCAA Tournament appearances, announced she will be stepping down effective June 30 to spend more time with her family.
"I would like to thank the Parkside administration for giving me my first opportunity to coach at the collegiate level. I would also like to thank the current and past student-athletes that I have had the honor to coach and mentor. They have made this journey so special and I am forever grateful to all of them," said Knight-Kenesie.
"It is very difficult to walk away from this program but my family is my priority and with a fourth child on the way it is time to step away. I will truly miss coaching these young women but I will be their biggest fan and I will be following them and their success."
